I was wondering what everyone has planned for the guests before the wedding...like group activities or fun get togethers. So, please post your plans or if you're already married, then what did you do during your wedding week?
So far we have one day fully planned out as far as activities go.
We're anticipating the possibility of jet lag with a lot of the guests so our welcome dinner will be delayed a couple nights after they arrive.
A day or so after our welcome dinner, we have the full day planned out:
The day starts out with a hop-on/off bus day tour of Rome for all the guests. Lunch will be provided. Then later after the tour, the guests be treated to a dinner cruise to see Rome by night. We're thinking of separating these two into two different days though.
Of course, closer to the wedding, there will be the usual with a rehearsal dinner and bachelor/bachelorette parties too. But we'll be in Rome for about a week and a half, so there are still plenty of days without things planned yet.
We're not planning something for everyday because we wanted the guests to have days for their own vacation and be able to spend it how they wanted to. However, we also wanted to add a couple/few more activities or something into the stay, to prevent boredom and just for everyone to have fun together. Any ideas/suggestions? Just as an FYI...Any activities will be paid for by us, anything not planned by us or not to do with the wedding, the guests pay for themselves. Everyone's hotel location will, also, not be an issue, as FI and I are renting a floor or two in a hotel and providing the guests' accomodation. So, no one will be staying in separate hotels to arise transportation issues.
I would love to hear what you all have planned and maybe even get some more ideas myself =]
